I’m having a Saturday brunch wedding so you should definitely do it.  Why?

1. Brunch food is delicious and is always the best.

2. It’s intimate and warm and inviting.

3. To be a part of the cool kids club (with me, obvs), and

4. Brunch food.  Deserves a second mention.

Just have to add–it’s not really brunch without hollandaise. I had brunch with family last weekend–no hollandaise. So disappointed. It doesn’t have to mean eggs benny, even just a side for asparagus or ham is good enough for me.

I drive 30 minutes for the brunch in the city with my girls.  Driving an hour for a wedding is not a stretch at all.

jefisler1 :  I love this idea, honestly I’ve recently been wishing I had decided to do a brunch wedding, but too late to change it now. Go for it!

“but keep in mind what you get with a brunch wedding – it’s not an all-out dance party. it’s more of a subduded socialization hour.”

Why should it be subdued? A lot of brunches I’ve attended have been pretty rucus! Brunch food plus a few bloody marys and mimosas and you got yourself a good time.

I had one! I think they are better than evening weddings personally. Less time is wasted waiting around getting ready and you get to spend the whole day with your new husband.

I would much prefer this to a Friday or Sunday evening wedding! I think unless you have a pretty hardcore party crowd its less likely to be a a crazy party club vibe but personally I would enjoy it more anyway as a mostly non-drinker and bad dancer. Also, not going to lie unless we are related, I would MUCH prefer weddings that don’t monopolize my whole day.

I enjoy a good, high-energy evening wedding, but what you’re describing sounds really wonderful, too. And I love brunch food. Chances are I’d go to the wedding town the night before and stay over at a hotel, then go to the brunch wedding and head home afterward.

Sounds fine to me. I’m fine with pretty much anything as long as there is a meal of some kind. I’d personally prefer to hang out and talk to people than to watch drunk people try to dance.

Cute town sounds lovely for people to explore in the evening after your wedding! 

And as for getting up early, we are having afternoon ceremony with evening reception, but due to getting in all our pictures and ducks lined up timeline wise, we’re still going to have to get up for makeup at 6 am :0. So go for it! 

Oh and lunch is SOOOO much cheaper. Like $10K vs. $20K for a large wedding!

Brunch weddings always sound like fun. I’m just not a morning person I’m a night owl otherwise I would have done this. So unless most your guests work the night shift I don’t think it will be a problem. The only other problem you could have if it’s a religious group and they prefer to go to church on Sundays. But even then you know your guests so you should be able to gage it. Driving an hour is not that bad I have sat in traffic for much longer to go a short distance.
